Shopping for Save-the-Date’s: Road to a Marriage License [PICTURES]

The story so far:  I decided to start a series on planning for a wedding from a guy’s perspective.  I’ve already shared the stories about the proposal and choosing the wedding venue (click here if you haven’t read those yet).  And so here we are on volume three!

Over the weekend, Robyn and I thought we’d head to a party store to look at save-the-date’s and wedding invitations.  There were so, so many choices…

…binder after 20lb binder of choices!

I’ll confess, after we had looked through the second or third binder, my brain started to melt.  There were several announcements that I swear looked exactly the same, despite their descriptions insisting they were different.  It took me a few minutes to rebuild my neural pathways and get my head back in the game; but I’m glad I did, because we were actually getting closer and closer to what we wanted.

Luckily, the staff at the store was very helpful, and we left with some information on one particular save-the-date that we really liked.  I didn’t get a picture, but it’s very simple: white card stock with raised, embossed lettering.  Clean, classy, and traditional.  Now we just have to solidify our guest list so we know how many to order!
